Half-Century Survey 

By Sister Angela Maria, 
and Elisabeth Reichert Smith, Ph.D* 

At the opening of the Georgetown University Training 
School for Nurses in 1903, neither Georgetown Univer- 
sity, its hospital, nor the nursing profession could have 
envisaged the changes which were to occur in nursing 
during the subsequent half-century. 

The first eight students, graduated in 1906, like those 
who followed during the next three decades or so, found 
their education a form of apprenticeship involving long 
hours of practice on hospital wards with limited amounts 
of classroom instruction. The vital role of student nurses 
of this era in providing nursing service to the hospital’s 
patients is evidenced by the small number of graduate 
staff nurses employed by the hospital. For example, as 
recently as March 'of 1935 only eight staff nurses were 
employed throughout the hospital. 

The dual position of the Franciscan Sister who served 
both as hospital superintendent and principal of the 
nursing school facilitated this service use of students. A 
single School of Nursing Committee, meeting for a half- 
hour period either monthly or bimonthly, sufficed to 
establish educational policies and to consider unusual 
administrative matters. 

Despite the apprenticeship approach to nursing edu- 
cation generally prevailing at that time, it is obvious that 
the school authorities were aware of the trend toward 
another type of education for nurses. This is indicated 
by the early dates at which affiliations in pediatric (1926) 
and psychiatric (1935) nursing and elective supervised 
field experience in public health nursing (1935) were 
introduced into the Georgetown curriculum. 

Cessation of the public healtlT nursing field experience 
in 1936 had little effect on the students’ program since 
it involved only one student during each period. The 
transfer, in 1937, of the affiliation in psychiatric nursing 
from St. Elizabeth Hospital to Mt. Hope Retreat (later 

known as The Seton Institute) followed critical examina- 
tion of the educational content in this area of nursing. 
Growing concern for the students’ welfare was also ap- 
parent in the School of Nursing Committee meetings at 
which such topics as library, smoking and recreational 
facilities, regular class schedules, and late permissions 
merited discussion. 

The Curriculum Guide for Schools of Nursings pub- 
lished by the National League of Nursing Education in 
1937, evoked an immediate response at Georgetown. The 
number of class hours in the basic sciences .was increased; 
the need for a course in sociology was studied; and an 
effort was made to bring course content into conformity 
with League recommendations. 

The increased attention focused on the curriculum, to- 
gether with recognUon of the need for student guidance, 
a student government organization, and more carefully 
formulated policies for admission, led to the establish- 
ment of additional committees within the Executive Com- 
mittee with written regulations covering its membership, 
duties, and responsibilities, and the name of , the school 
was changed from the Georgetown Hospital Training 
School for Nurses to the Georgetown University School 
of Nursing. 

Official consideration by the University of a, baccalau- 
reate-level program reflected increased acceptance of 
nursing education as a university responsibility. This 
resulted, in 1944, in the establishment of a five-year 
degree program which possessed the advantage of pro- 
viding academic content without disrupting the three- 
year diploma program of nursing studies. Inasmuch as 
the three-year program also served as the three clinical 
years of the baccalaureate program; it was possible to 
carry both degree and diploma programs without sub- 
stantial increases or changes in the* responsibilities of

town University hospital. 

the clinical faculty, especially since little attention was 
paid to the articulation of the academic and clinical areas 
of the degree program. 

Gradual changes were also occuring at this time which 
eventually led to recognition of the Nursing School’s 
responsibility for the education of the students as dis- 
tinct from the service needs of the hospital and its 
patients. The separation of the position of hospital super- 
intendent from that of principal of the School of Nursing 
and the steady increase in the number of graduate staff 
nurses employed by the hospital both reflected and facili- 
tated the differentiation of the aims, responsibilities, and 
methods of these two agencies. 

With the entrance of the United States into Worid 
War II, the Georgetown University School of Nursing 
accepted the need for many adjustments in its policies 
and practices. Demand for an accelerated program; par- 
ticipation in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps; in- 
creased applications for admission with the resulting 
need for additional housing facilities; and the demands 
of nursing service in the hospital, placed heavy respon- 
sibilities upon the teaching and administrative officers 
of the University, the School of Nursing, and the Hospital. 

The suggestion of the National League of Nursing 
Education that nursing programs be accelerated was 
approved by the District of Columbia Board of Nurse 
Examiners, and was implemented at Georgetown begin- 
ning with the Fall semester, 1943. A shortage of housing 
space led to application for government funds to build 
St. Mary’s Hall, which was completed in May of 1943. 
Additional housing space was also procured through 
purchase of a residence on 44th Street. 

More complete integration of the School of Nursing 
into the University took place in 1947 with the appoint- 
ment of the School’s first Dean, a Sister of Charity of 

Nazareth, Ky. During the same year, the new George- 
town University Hospital was erected, providing up-to- 
date facilities for clinical experience as well as expanded 
housing facilities for student nurses through use of the 
old hospital building. 

This housing arrangement continued until 1956 when 
a new residence was built for the School of Nursing 
adjacent to the Medical Center, bringing the school 
within the geographical confines of the Medical Center 
of the University and making possible accommodations 
for 178 resident students. 

The first Regent of the School of Nursing was ap- 
pointed in 1948, and efforts to extend the rank and 
tenure system of the University to the Nursing School 
faculty were completed in 1951. In order to prepare for 
accreditation by the National League of Nursing Educa- 
tion and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Nurs- 
ing, it was deemed essential to develop a plan to enable 
graduate nurses employed in the hospital to gain the 
necessary educational background for supervisory posi-- 
tions with faculty status. In 1950 a supplemental pro-- 
gram for graduate nurses leading to the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Nursing was introduced. 

The lack of integration between general education and 
nursing subjects in the five-year baccalaureate program 
was recognized as a significant weakness even as the pro- 
gram was initiated in 1944. Not only was there need for 
correlation of all course content but also for improve- 
ment in the quality of the nursing major. Following in- 
tensive study of this problem, the Curriculum Committee 
recommended that a four-year integrated degree program 
supplant the five-year degree program. It was recognized 
at this time that this same solution was being adopted 
by many other collegiate institutions. 

Consideration was given to the need to maintain the 



existing diploma program since it was the only such pro- 
gram under Catholic auspices in the Washington area. 
However, limitations on the resources of the University 
and hospital made it difficult to continue two basic pro- 
grams. Also, the supplemental program for graduate 
nurses placed additional demands upon the school. It 
was believed that this latter program should be given 
higher priority on the basis of then current educational 
needs in nursing. 

Therefore, it was decided to terminate both the di- 
ploma and five-year degree programs upon graduation of 
the classes admitted in 1950, to continue the supplemental 
program for graduate nurses, and to admit the first class 
to the four-year basic professional nursing program in 

In this same year the School of Nursing was estab- 
lished as an independent school within the Georgetown 
University. Within this framework the University ac- 
cepted responsibility for the school’s programs. 

Throughout the planning and implementation stages 
of the new program, particular attention was focused on 
those educational requirements recommended by ac- 
crediting agencies as well as on the unique educational 
objectives of the school. Temporary accreditation by the 
National League for Nursing was granted shortly after 
the establishment of the four-year basic professional 

Determination to prepare simultaneously for full ac- 
creditation in public health nursing as well as of the basic 
professional program made mandatory the establishment 
of clinical experience in public health nursing as an in- 
tegral part of the program. Public health nursing agen- 
cies, other than the Instructive Visiting Nurse Society 
(later, the Visiting Nurse Association) which was already 
providing an affiliation on an elective basis, were ex- 
amined to determine their availability as clinical areas 
in the event that Georgetown classes should become too 
large to be accommodated by a single agency. 

The appointment of a faculty member in public health 
nursing also facilitated faculty efforts to further develop 
social and psychological aspects of' disease conditions, 
normal growth and development of the individual, and 
community aspects' of prevention and control of illness 
throughout the curriculum. 

Since accreditation standards would affect the amount 
and conditions of student assignment to evening and 
night duty both during affiliations and clinical assign- 
ment at Georgetown University Hospital, a policy defin- 
ing both was established. The new policy led to the 
withdrawal of affiliation in pediatric nursing- from Chil- 
dren’s Hospital and its establishment as Gallinger Hospi- 
tal ’(later, District of Columbia General .Hospital) . 

A four-week experience in tuberculous nursing, 
originally offered as an elective at Gallinger Hospital, 
was made part of all students’ experience and developed 
at the collegiate levd at Glenn Dale Hospital. 

In 1955 full accreditation by the National League for 

Nursing was, granted to Georgetown University for the 
basic professional nursing program including public 
health nursing. At the same time study of the supple- 
mental program revealed that considerable revision was 
necessary in order to meet accreditation standards. Since 
the needs of the basic professional program demanded 
full attention of the faculty, it was decided to suspend 
admission to the supplemental program during the aca- 
demic year, 1956-1957. Reevaluation of this program the 
following year indicated that the situations leading to 
its suspension had not changed and it was decided not 
to reactivate the program at that time. 

Weaknesses in the educational content in psychiatric- 
mental health nursing led to a request for nurse con- 
sultation services from, the National Institue of Mental 
Health. Clinical experience in psychiatric nursing, as 
well as in other areas in which concepts of psychiatric- 
mental health nursing could be introduced and developed, 
were studied. In the Fall of 1957 the United States Pub- 
lic Health Service through the National Institute of 
Mental Health awarded a grant to the School of Nursing 
providing for appointment of a psychiatric nurse con- 
sultant to assist the faculty in the evaluation of educa- 
tional needs in psychiatric-mental health nursing and 
the implementation of the faculty’s plan for meeting these 

The Georgetown University School of Nursing faculty 
and administration, by continuing efforts to relate its 
philosophy, aim^, and objectives to the needs of the stu- 
dents, the community, and the nursing profession, has 
achieved the development of a sound basic professional 
program in nursing. The high standards of Catholic, 
collegiate, and professional education reflected in this 
program have led to the admission of a student body of 
approximately two hundred students carefully selected 
from a large number of applicants. Refinement of re- 
quirements for faculty appointment, cooperation of mem- 
bers of the various departments of the University con- 
cerned with nursing education, continuing attempts to 
apply University rank, tenure, and salary structure to 
the Nursing School faculty, and participation of the stu- 
dents in University Standards for Dean’s List and Aca- 
demic Honors, reflect the unified efforts of the University 
and its School of Nursing toward continuing improve- 
ment of this program of studies. 

Recognition of University responsibility for all seg- 
ments of the curriculum, both theoretical and clinical, 
has led to exploration of new patterns of relationships 
with agencies providing clinical areas for educational 
purposes. Extensive utilization of the facilities of the 
Georgetown University School of Nursing and of the 
Washington area, both academic and clinical, curricular 
and cocurricular, provides educational experiences neces- 
sary for the preparation of graduates as knowledgeable 
Catholics and adult women, competent to fulfill their 
responsibilites to their families. Church, communities, 
and profession. 




On Civil Liberties 

“I am terribly concerned as a trial lawyer over some 
phenomena that' have found their way into our social 
fabric in the past ten years; phenomena that seem to me 
to be incredible intrusions into our traditional concepts 
of human freedom and ’^individual liberty.” With these 
words, Edward Bennett Williams, in a recent Gaston 
lecture, began his exposition of some modern facets of 
an old problem. 

The first threat to civil liberties, as Mr. Williams 
points out, is that of the “legislative lynch” which has 
arisen in these days of televised Congressional hearings. 
“Certainly Congress and its Committees,” he claims, 
“have the right to make inquiry, have the right to make 
investigations in the fields in which they have a bona fide 
intent to legislate . . . but this is a far cry from calling 
witnesses to demonstrate facts already within the knowl- 
edge of the committee. It is a far cry from calling wit- 
nesses for the purpose of exposing them, or degrading 
them, or humiliating them, or publicly castigating them.” 

The. current procedure is to interrogate witnesses in 
executive session, asking them all the questions relevant 
and germane to the subject matter and then to recall the 
witnesses in open session. Mr. Williams continued, “They 
are called before television and radio and the press and 
the same questions are put to them, but on a more selec- 
tive basis. Unfortunately, the record appears th^t the 
questions which are propounded to them are those which 
will excite headlines and attract public attention.” We 
are reminded, however, that the purpose of the legisla- 

tive committees is to “get information for the purposes 
of legislation” and not to expose. “Exposition,” says Mr. 
Williams, “may be a good objective, but an invalid, un- 
constitutional, illicit means was. being employed to attain 
that objective. 

“I say that philosophically all God believing people 
accept the tenet that a good end does not justify an evil 
means. And so, if the means being employed is illicit, 
the fact that exposition itself may be a good objective 
does not warrant an unconstitutional procedure.” 

The futility of such attempts to expose without acquir- 
ing any new information is shown by those witnesses who 
invoked the fifth amendment so often. The giiilt or in- 
nocence of such men, said the speaker, is not material: 
“It is no more right to lynch a guilty man than to lynch 
an innocent man.” 

Another violation of the principle that a good end does 
not justify an evil means is wiretapping which was made 
a criminal offense by Congress in 1934. “Yet,” said Mr. . 
Williams, “ the greatest investigative agency in the history, 
of the worldj^ the JF^^l Bureau oF^vestigation.^tai^ 
wires and it ta p^ w ires^alLthe . ^tim^ This Js shown bv t he 
repofS^rtKi^last eight Attorneys General of the United 
States^and,the admission of the Directory of Jhjgjed^^ 
Bureau of ^Iny estj g a tiom>hi mself^ r^ongress^yhen^ 
he testified seeking appropriations for.hisjag en^y.” 

The justification for this wiretapping is “necessity.” 
“But,” continues Mr. Williams, “necessity has been the 



^ a 


4 ' 

plea for every infringement of human rights since the 
beginning of democracy. ‘It is the argument of tyrants 
and the creed of slaves,’ said William Pitt. 

“Wiretapping is no less a crime when done by an 
agent of the Government or the State than when done 
by a private citizen. And I am displeased to tell you it is 
done on a wide scale, and it’s done all the time. 

“In New York there is a statute which purports to 
authorize wire tapping. And it is standard practice, I 
can document this at any time for any of you who are 
interested that agencies of the Federal Government ,use 
New York State wire taps constantly.” 

Even in such states which have, statutes purporting to 
authorize it, wiretapping is a menace because every time 
someone calls such a state from another state, potentially 
the security of his conversation is in danger. Nor, claimed 
Mr. Williams, can such a state “ignore the law of the 
land on.wiretapping, 

“Now, 150 years ago, in this country we arrived at the 
conclusion that our mores would not accept the opening 
of other people’s mail. I say, "this constitutes an even 
worse 'infractioh of civil liberties; because a ‘telephone 
tap records both the message and the answer. And a 
telephone tap on a suspect picks up the’ conversation of 
innocent persons. Conversations between husband and 
wife, doctor and patient, lawyer and client. Sometimes 
conversations between a clergyman and his parishioner. 

“And yet, wiretapping goes on year after year and the 
challenge does not come forth from my profession. 

Edward Bennett Williams, L *44, prominent Washington at- 
torney, is shown delivering his recent Gaston lecture on **The 
Lawyer and the Tainted Client!* Within the past year,^Mr. 
Williams has expressed his views on Constitutional rights in 
the courts and in many speaking engagements and has testified 
bejore Congressional Committees on the same subject* His ac- 
tivities have been covered by Life in a recent issue and he has 
S been interviewed on both the Mike Wallace and the Edward 
R* Murrow television shows. 

I The Gaston Lecture Series, of which Mr. Williams* address 
I was a part, has also presented during the past year Associate 
1 Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr,, speaking on 
j **Law and Social Sciences Today**; literary critic and poet 
b Allen Tate discussing **How Not to Read Poetry**; and historian 
Bruce Catton on **The Civil War: First Modern W ar!* Begin- 

I ning again in the Fall, the Gaston Series will offer another 
group of distinguished lecturers to the Georgetown public. 

“Again I mention the inequities that exist in American 
criminal procedure, 1957 A.D., and I can best illustrate 
those for you by relating my own personal experience in 
the field. 

When I first started to practice law twelve years ago, I 
was with a large firm. We represented insurance com- 
panies, the street car company, taxi companies, and it 
was my lot in life to go into court and defend these 
companies against persons who were suing them for 

“I was defending corporate bank rolls, and I found 
that in the defense of a corporate bank roll the rules 
permitted me to take the testimony of the person who 
was injured before trial, so that we would know exactly 
what he or she was going to testify to. I found that we 
could learn the identity of all the witnesses of the suing 
party, the plaintiff, and take all of their testimony, before 

“I found that we could get all the relevant documents 
germane to the issues before the trial of the case, so that 
when I went into court I knew exactly what the other 
side had. I was like a quarterback on a football team 
with a set of the opposition’s plays and their signals. 

“But when I began to defend people whose liberty, in 
some instances, whose life, and in every instance, whose 
reputation was at stake, I found that I could not learn 
the names of the witnesses for the prosecution nor take 
their testimony before trial, nor get documentary evi- 
dence before trial.” 


The Supreme Court ruling in the Jenks case helped 
to alleviate this problem by allowing a defendant the 
right to see certain statements in the hands of the 
FBI. Nevertheless, said Mr. Williams. . I find it 
terribly hard to believe that the founding fathers of this 
republic . . . when they wrote the hallowed bill of rights 
. . . to believe that they intended to iniplement property 
rights by procedural rules more advantageous than those 
which implement human rights. 

‘‘And yet, this Spring when the Supreme Court of the 
United States took a forward step in the right direction 
and held that where there was a basis for believing that 
a witness in a criminal case had testified perjuriously, the 
defendant should have the right to see the statement in ^ 
the hands of t he FBI th e hue and cry that went up was 
so loud and so deadly that Congress was motivated in 
the last three days of this Session hysterically to rush 
a bill through to countervail the decision in the Jenks 

“Now I say there are inequities in criminal procedure, 
1957 A.D. I cite you the statistics of 1956. Last year 
31,811 people were accused of crimes by the United States 
Government across this Nation. How many were con- 
victed? 27,657 — ^90 per cent. In the 11,000 cases in 
which the Federal Bureau of Investigation worked the 
percentage was 96.4 per centT^ the Government — no 
litigant — can win 90 per cent of a big volume of litigation. 

“The inequities cry out for a remedy and my profes- 
sion must be alerted, excited, and made to move on it. 
Some of you may be future members of it. It’s a situa- 
tion which calls out for a change. 

“Now, with respect to those defendants who did not 
take the stand in their own defense, the statistics are 
even more staggering. Because, of those, 99 per cent 
were convicted. And I say that this marks the advent in 
our system of jurisprudence of the concept of guilt by 

“The organized assaults on the Fifth Amendment and 
its use over the past ten years,” said Mr. Williams, “has 
effectively nullified the presumption of innocence for a 
silent defendant . . . and the Fifth Amendment is what 
substantially differentiates our system of justice from the 
European system, because ours is accusatorial and theirs 
is inquisitorial.” 

Closely related to the concept of “guilt by silence” is 
that of “guilt by client,” Mr. Williams continued, “In 
fourteen states, prospective candidates for jobs as prose- 
cutors are asked: ‘Have you ever represented an ex- 
convict, one accused of Communism, a hoodlum, a 
racketeer?’ The Sixth Amendment said that every man 
who is accused of crime has the right to counsel. Every 
man. Not every man except an ex-convict, not every man 
except one who is charged with being a hoodlum, but 
every man.” Mr. Williams believes there must therefore 
be an obligation on the members of the legal profession 
to “render that representation — so long as it is sought 
within the limitations of integrity. 


“But somehow this message’ has never quite penetrated, 
either to the members of the law profession* or to the 
laity, because too often our respected and reverend lead- 
ers watch for an exit when the scorned and degraded, 
when the publicly obnoxious come for aid. But the fact 
of the matter is, everyone — no matter how socially or 
politically obnoxious he may be at the time ... is en- 
titled to counsel, so long as he seeks it within the limits 
of honesty. And the fantastic thing is that it is in these 
cases involving the scorned and the degraded and the 
unpopular where the great constitutional issues are gen- 
erally fought. 

“The great advocates of the past were willing to risk 
the obloquy of the uninformed in the defense of the 
rights of the most degraded. Samuel and John Adams 
stood beside the defendants at the bar of justice in the 
Boston Massacre Case. When the advocates of 1958 re- 
sume that glorious tradition, the legal profession will 
resume the glory that it has known in the past. 

“These are some of the phenomena that trouble me. 
I’m afraid that we lawyers have become obsessed ^ith 
property rights. I said before that I think that the de- 
fense of liberty has lost its prestige and that the defense 
of property is paying off better in dollars and esteem. 

“. . . Somehow the idea is being nurtured and fostered 
that it is professionally ‘declasse’ to stand at the bar of 
justice beside one whose liberty is in jeopardy . . . We 
have forgotten that the first frontiers of American civil 
liberties were forged in the precincts of this country, in 
the dingy magistrate rooms, in the felony courts of the 
counties, in the Federal courtrooms across this Nation. 
We have lost sight of this basic tenet.” 

Mr. Williams concluded, “I believe that our freedom 
in this country is the end-product of thousands and thou- 
sands of minute episodes. No one event has marked its 
victory; no one event its decline. Its vigor or its weak- 
ness has been marked by a pattern of events so small 
as to be invisible to the total mosaic of American free- 
dom. We must remain sensitive to those episodes ,and 
concerned about it. 

“And if my profession is to man the watchtowers of 
liberty in this country and hold the trust that is imposed 
in it, it would do well to recall a prayer ... by a lawyer 
from the Far East, Tagor: 

‘Where the mind is without fear and the head is held 

‘Where knowledge is free — 

‘Where the world is. not divided into segments by 
narrow domestic walls, 

‘Where words come up from the depths of truth — 

‘Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards 

‘Where the clear stream of reason is not lost in the 
dreary desert sand of dead habit — 

‘Where the mind is led forward into ever widening 
thought and action: 

‘Into that heaven, my Father, let my profession awake’.”

You can find rich rewards 
as an agent for the 
Farmers Insurance Group 

Only 29 years ago the Farmers Insurance 
Group started, with very small capital and 
big ideas. 

Today we’re considered the largest auto 
insurance company in the West. We have 
expanded into 25 states — from California 
to Illinois — and further growth depends 
only upon getting the right kind of men— 
like you Georgetown alumni — to join us. 

Our assets are over $192 million dollars. 
Actually many men who have joined us are 
now independently wealthy. 

We have a unique approach to the insur- 
ance business which makes it easier to win 
success quickly. Even if you know nothing 
about the insurance business, we can teach 
you our “secrets” quickly — you can test our 
methods while you are still employed else- 

where, earn while you learn, and join us full 
time only after you have convinced your- 
self that Farmers Insurance Group offers 
the money making opportunity you want. 

Write for information to the Home Office 
Sales Dept., 4680 Wilshire Blvd., Los An- 
geles 54, California. 

Or look in your phone book — if there is 
a Farmers Insurance Group office in your 
area, call on our District Manager and ask 
about money-making-opportunities in our
